Well there are many different types of privilege:
white privilege, male privilege, economic privilege, etc.

So to say
as a white woman, you really have no idea what it is to be told you have to delay your school plans.
with
as a white woman, you really have no idea what it is to be a woman of color
is a false equivalence, and fairly presumptive.

This (as you know) is also being discussed elsewhere.

To take that further, being successful NOW in no way reflects on how easy or hard the path was to get there (regardless of demographic background.)
